Boys On The Docks

Dropkick Murphys

say hey johnny boy,
the battle call
united we stand, divided we fall
together we are
what we can't be alone
we came to this country
you made it our home

this man so humble,
this man so brave
a legend to many,
he fought to his grave
saved family and friends
from the hardship and horror
in a land of depression
he gave hope for tomorrow
say johnny boy
this ones for you
with the strength of many
and the courage of few
to what do we ow this man
who's fight was for the masses,
he gave his life
a friend to the locals who dabbled in crime
he'd give you a job
and he'd give you his time
he wasn't a crook
but he couldn't be conned
john knew the difference between right and wrong
say johnny me boy,
you live hear no longer
others forgotten,
your memory's stronger
lets drink to the causes in your life
your family, your friends, the union, your wife
(chorus) 2x
and the boys on the docks needed john for sure
when they came to this country
he opened the door
he said men i'll tell ya
they don't like our kind
though it starts with a fist
it must end with your mind
